Soundstage Standout Demo CES 2009


Rockport Technologies, Ypsilon Electronics and Blue Smoke Entertainment Systems

Rockport Technologies, Ypsilon Electronics and Blue Smoke Entertainment Systems combined resources to provide simply amazing sound at this year's CES. Of course, with a total system price over $200,000, you would expect nothing less -- and this system certainly delivered.

The sound was just so right that we could have stayed and listened all day. Not only was the sound big and dynamic, as you would expect from a system of this size, but the most subtle details were also present. One of the tracks that we listened to was of an explosive flamenco guitar. Not only did this system image like crazy, but you could almost sense the performer's fingers flying over the guitar's frets as the notes flew by. The resolution was astonishing.

The system consisted of the Rockport Technologies Aquila loudspeakers ($44,500 per pair)...

...driven by the massive Ypsilon Electronics SET-100 mono amplifiers ($90,000 per pair) and a PST-100 preamplifier ($36,000). The amplifier shown in the middle is the stereo SET-100VS that was for display purposes only.

Also in use were the Blue Smoke Entertainment Systems Black Box digital music system (second shelf from top, $6,995), MSB Technology DAC III with Signature 32x digital filter and Signature DACs ($17,485), a Harmonic Resolution Systems stand and Transparent Audio cables.

Pricey, but with performance to match.
